Mary appears in the Aldbury Churchwarden's Accounts for 1801 :-

As Mary's daughter Catherine was shown as a Laundress in the 1861 census it is quite likely from the above account entry that Mary was also a Laundress.
The ancestry from Mary onwards is only from the IGI and has not been further researched in the Tring Parish Registers etc. as yet.
